After President Trump proved once again that he thinks People of Color are less than by calling Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations "shitholes," CNN journalist Don Lemon refused to dance around the subject.
Lewis said that Trump had undermined 25 years of African goodwill towards the United States "to essentially give the back of his hand to 49 countries south of the Sahara creates real problems in many ways".
Tucker Carlson said President Trump's controversial comment about the US accepting immigrants from "s***hole countries" is forcing a conversation that elected leaders don't want to have.
"It is not true", said Durbin, who was one of the lawmakers at the Oval Office meeting.
Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) did not say that the President used the language Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) has accused him of.
"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.
A cold night with a light snow chance Friday
Light snow moves in Sunday evening and when it wraps up after midnight we could have a couple inches of snow back on the ground. The winds will still be breezy in the afternoon, but the temperatures will not rebound.
Sen. Jeff Flake, a fierce Republican critic of the president, was not at the meeting but tweeted that he had heard directly from those who were in attendance.
Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security. Not just once but repeatedly. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC, also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments. "That was the nature of this conversation".
However, Republican Sen. Tim Scott, the junior senator from SC, told the Charleston Post and Courier that Graham told him the reported comments are "basically accurate". "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and United States of America would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime....", Trump tweeted. How does it help or hurt America?
It was unclear now how a deal might emerge, though both sides insist the clock is ticking. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?"
